Product: About 12,000 (9,000 Disney Princess Trikes were recalled in April 2011*). This recall involves the Disney-branded Fairies Plastic Racing Trike. The trike is green and purple with a white seat and yellow wheels. On top of the handlebar, there is a Tinkerbell figure and three other rotating fairy figures. “Disney Fairies” is printed on the label in front of the trike just below the handlebar.
Sold exclusively at: Target stores nationwide from July 2009 through December 2009 for about $50
Date: November 1, 2011
Manufactured in: China
Manufacturer: Kiddieland Toys Limited, of Scituate, Massachusetts (Note: Disney licensed their brand name to Kiddieland)
Problem: The plastic fairy figures protrude from the top of the handle bar posing a laceration hazard if a child falls on them.
Incidents/Injuries: CPSC and Kiddieland have received one report of a 3-year-old girl from Ohio who suffered a facial laceration near her right eye.
Action: Consumers should immediately take the trikes away from children and contact Kiddieland for a free replacement handlebar with an enclosed rotating display.
More Information: For additional information, contact Kiddieland at (800) 430-5307 anytime, or visit the firm’s website at www.kiddieland.com.hk.
*New model Princess Trikes do not have figurines and are not included in the recall.
